to have you here. that deadly terror attack killed four americans, u.s. ambassador chris stevens, two former navy seals and information management officer. peter doocy is live with more on the ongoing investigation. what is the latest. >> reporter: the latest is f.b.i. agents are still within not the city limits of benghazi. so the investigation into the attack has not fully started yet even though it's been 19 days since the attacks. republican senator bob corker who sits on the foreign relations committee is curious that thought it was safe enough for u.s. ambassador to have such lighted security three weeks ago but not safe enough for our best and brightest investigators to work under heavy guard. he wrote a letter to james clapper what has changed in libya that even f.b.i. agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city. what has led to a decline and unwillinglessness to provide answers and inaccuracy of information we have received has undermined the credibility of the administration. the chairman of the house committee peter king echoed that sentiment. that the tim

yesterday telling the u.n. assembly that america will get to the bottom of the murders of chris stevens and the others. >> the attack on civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt we will be relentless tracking down the killers and bringing them tobill: how possit while order in libya is still unknown? we want to begin our coverage now. greg palkot streaming live out of tripoli. what is the latest on this militia crackdown there, greg? >> reporter: bill, martha, we're getting mixed signals about that. we were just talking to our contact in benghazi. he said one of the key militias in that city is it falling into line with the government. we've been out and about here in tripoli. we visited one compound where militias were driven out by libyan security forces but there are new protests planned for here and in benghazi on friday. a sign maybe the folks here aren't too sure what is going on with the militias. amid new concerns some of their weapons are going into the wrong places. one militia commander says a lot of the shoulder-fired rockets that he was holdin
.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. stevens and three members of his attack were killed in an attack on the u.s. consulate on september 11th. today's moment is silence is held during the u.c. berkeley arizona state football game. stevens graduated from u.c. berkeley in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in history. >>> this morning, michigan police are still working to determine if the body of teamsters leader jimmy hoffa is buried beneath a home in detroit. yesterday, all eyes were on the home as police removed two soil samples from underneath a shed. they were acting on a tip from a man dying of cancer who says he saw a body being buried at the home around the time hoffa disappeared. a scan of the area showed something under a concrete slab, but police are not sure what exactly it is. >> it could be a dead body. if not hoffa, then somebody else. or it could be the root of a tree. who notice. >> police say the soil samples are being tested for traces of human remains, and that nothing else was found during the dig. hoff that was last seen outside -- hoffa was last seen outside a restaurant in sub
.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi which killed ambassador stevens and three other americans grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-muslim video. the white house later reversed course and said it was a premeditated terrorist attack. david plouffe tried to clear up its inconsistency yesterday on "meet the press." >> information was being provided real time. obviously you're going to know more two weeks after an event and a week after an event and as ambassador rice -- that was the information from the intelligence community, provided for congress. the reason, obviously, we now have stipulated this is a terrorist attack is that came from the intelligence agencies. >> plouffe's comments after the director of national sbem generals released a mea culpa two days earlier saying it was the fault of the intelligence community and not the white house acknowledging its assessment was based on preliminary and evolving evidence. that explanation wasn't good enough for peter king, the top republican on the house homeland security committee who called for the resignation of u.n. am
stevens as part of a larger narrative about leadership. you have sent a leader to secretary of state clinton saying diplomats requested additional security and that those requests were denied. can you tell us more about that? >> in my letter, we outlined 13 security interest attacks, threats against western targets. let's remember that in the six months that led up to 9/11, which was the death of four americans, the death of an ambassador, first time since the 1970s that has happened. they did ask for increased security. they actually diminished the security pro file. did you know for instance that twice, our compound there in bengha benghazi, sovereign territory, was bombed two times? the white house had never told the american people that let alone the word. did you know that the british ambassador had two assassination attempts on his life? did you know that secretary, ambassador stevens had a facebook post showing where he runs, his picture, and people were advocating they kill the ambassador. all of these things in the six months running up to 9/11 and his ultimate death. it was
the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other
in our name. we're against the bloodshed. we're against what you did to ambassador stevens and for the first time there's a real debate in the arab world and moderates are speaking up. they're not shying away from it and so aggressive about it. >> that's encouraging. because that is the point that freedman went on to make in the column, he cited op-eds from the region advocating of no violence and pushing back what the extreme tactics. >> we need to understand that who killed ambassador stevens were not the mobs. it was a deliberate attack of some group that is linked with al qaeda and that was a very planned, well organized and carried attack. i mean, you don't go to a demonstration with rpg-7 and with heavy weaponry. they were very well organized and they orchestrated the whole thing around the mobs but has nothing to do with the move vi, actually. >> that's clear and unfortunately it's not been the position of the administration thus far. >> all right. >> i think they played with that. >> rula, thank you for joining us. >>> up next, heading west to ohio and mitt romney i
a lot of hot button issues. >> yeah. the most recently retired justices were john paul stevens went out at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwar
on for hours, and there were warnings, as you know, because cnn put out part of chris stevens' diary. things are going south all over the world. look at this morning in iraq. we've got a miserable failure in iraq. it's unraveling. afghanistan, more insider killings, because this president doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and keeps telling people we're winning. finally he said something about syria, but now we're going to give them communications equipment, which does very well against attack airplanes and helicopters and artillery and tanks. >> you're being sarcastic here. you want to give more? >> we need to arm them. the iranians have admitted that they're on the ground. russians arms are falling in. iranian planes are flying over iraq as we speak. >> do you think there's a conflict? do you think we need to add to it? >> i think the role of america is to lead, not follow. by the way, we blame it on the video, and it shows the absolute inept tud and ignorance of the realities. >> they were blaming the protests against the american embassy and the deaths, in fact -- >> it's the not
on in benghazi. >> if you watch the president you notice he saw the foreign service that chris stevens our ambassador who murdered provided to the united nations and united states as well he talked glowingly of mr. stevens. it is odd that the day he was murdered mr. obama did the fund raising event on the day of the murder. >> brian: i thought it was interesting he said he was a christian and that was news to madonna who called him a black muslim. we are not sure. the speech was direct and half to the domestic audience and half to the world and meandering and like his speeches could be 10 minutes shorter. >> gretchen: is that politicians in general. >> brian: i thought mitt romney at the clinton initiative was more direct and offered a solution. we should linkk our foreign aid to the behavior of the countries many of which blow up our embassies. >> gretchen: if you are strat jizing for obama you coast until the election because he is ahead in the polls. that's what they tell somebody. for mitt romney, you got to point out solution and point out the differences and especially in the debates
communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only leads me to believe, number one, there was gross negligence or incompetence involved or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelrod's comments. number one, susan rice went way beyond the assessment here given by the director of national
is a millennial, steven crowder, what is millennial first of all. >> i was using my phone and people my age, probably about early mid 20's, and the general age range, and first range, late 80's, through early 2000's, depends who you ask. >> clayton: we have a new gallup poll out, this is interesting on millenials and how they'll fall in line perhaps for prol, president obama. and for president obama 58% and you framed it this way, that they are selfish and that's why they're going to vote for president obama. why is that? >> sure, most people are selfish, not singling out millennials. we tend to vote in our self-interest and tend to vote the occupy movement for more free crap not based on the constitutional parameters of government, but found principles, but what the government can give them and because they're voting that way, they're doing it wrong. >> clayton: so health care, number one, a lot of people saying in that age range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the s
-hum convention or the leaked video or stewart stevens or the improving economy or media bias or distorted polls or the message or mormonism it's mitt. >> ann romney. >> stephanie: that's a really good guess but no. [ ding ding ] it is the politico piece. in the end it's mitt. >> he's really not ready. [ ♪ "jeopardy" theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: with republicans everywhere wondering what happened to the campaign, people offer a simple explanation. it is candidate himself. politico has talked to dozens of republicans about this topic many raising massive amount of money to support it. few would talk to discuss their candidate appraisals of romney. you have to know the room and he doesn't know the room. republican who donated to romney and wants him to win. he's missing the normal guy gene. that's evident. look at his painful references as athletics as sport or his call for referees to return to the nfl playing fields. it is not how factory workers in ohio talk. who said that? >> ann romney. >> stephanie: another good guess
investigation. and look at the communiques that came from ambassador stevens. look what wa -- what was transpiring in libya. we have to realize this is a terrorist attack. this an act of war. this is not something that was carried out by some video watching benghazi-based community organizer that said let's bow flash mob the consulate in benghazi. this was a terrorist attack. bill: do you think it stops with susan rice? or does it go to the secretary of state hillary clinton or beyond that? >> this is why we need an independent council and we need the investigations to begin immediately. i think this is an issue -- benghazi-gate is the right term for this. this is very, very serious. probably more serious than watergate. and to call this a response to a video when it was obviously a terrorist attack -- and when you read some of the documentation on this, and you know that there has been other sites and locations that have bind attack in libya, when you know that the libyan government felt there was something getting ready to transpire. when you know a get know detainee was released
that the president and secretary clinton spoke about this video at the memorial service to ambassador stevens and the other folks who came home in coffins at andrews. spoke about the video. today, secretary clinton -- or yesterday -- spoke about al-qaeda and all of the groups of the people responsible for attack in benghazi. it seems disjointed. now al-qaeda is behind it. >> two separate set of events. one is you have anybody playing politics here is the romney campaign seeking some advantage as they are struggling in the polls and looking at the foreign policy. >> bret: take -- >> having problems. but to your point, they are learning more as time goes along. i don't think there is anybody trying to deny anybody. it's al-qaeda affiliate. not al-qaeda per se. >> bret: we continue this and talk about the economy and the politics of the campaign when we come back. a lot to talk about today. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ?
was offered from everyone and from everywhere. among those offering help, was ambassador chris stevens. a voice of reason and conscience, a man of love, a messenger of friendship, who came to libya following the outbreak of our freedom revolution, one who touched the people's feelings, who traveled from tripoli to them western mountains and back and all across libya. chris stevens spoke to everyone in arabic, always smiled, and showed care. this human diplomat had found his place -- has found his place in the consciousness of the libyan people. it was a day of sadness throughout libya when he was assassinated. along with his three aides. we would like to express our deepest condolences to the american people for this grave loss. it was a loss for libya, as it was a loss for the united states of america. we stress to the united states, its government, and it people that this catastrophe will only increase our solidarity to entrench the hopes and objectives in which ambassador chris stevens believed. we shall the feed -- defeat the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent
it clear when she was discussing the act tack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans that the investigation was still going on. >> arthel: the question is, was it the best information they had, at that time? >> reporter: that's what the obama administration and the state department say. sources tell fox news, intelligence officials knew within one day that it was a coordinated terror attack, likely tied to al-qaeda. a special person for director of national intelligence, says the u.s. is understanding of the event continues to evolve. it went on to stay in a statement: >> reporter: it is unclear when that assessment changed. >> arthel: molly, thank you. >> rick: governor mitt romney slamming the president on foreign policy in his weekly pod cast he blames the president for failing to take a more aggressive roll over cease. >>. >> -- aggressive roll over cease. >> that places our friends and allies at the mercy event dan those who do us harm. in a time of testing an american president must show strong leadership. dangerous world, we can't allow indifference to undermin
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
stevens. the options under discussion include drone strikes, special operations raids, and joint missions with libyan forces. lawmakers are claiming that the state are rebuffed pleas from the u.s. officials in libya. i house oversight and government reform committee, republicans said they set a hearing for next week to investigate. hillary clinton says she plans to cooperate with the probe. the pennsylvania judge has struck down the state's election law requiring voters to show photo id. pennsylvania's law allowed voting only to those who could produce a state driver's license, government employee id, or a state non-driver id card. but on tuesday, a commonwealth court judge ruled the state does not have enough time to adequately provide id to all those that need it in time for the november 6 election. the law was among the strictest to pass as a nationwide effort critics say is aimed at disenfranchising lower-income residents and people of color who tend to vote democratic. after its passage earlier this year, pennsylvania's republican house majority leader, mark -- mike turzai, predicted
the administration to try to stay away from that term and fnkly if you caulk to stevens' family and the other thr milies, e rhetorical plan, it's pretty clear. the libyan official, boots on the ground, said it was a terrorist act. they don't normally show up with rpgs and grenasnder th isoi b a peaceful demonstration. it certainly looks prearranged. who's responsible we don't know yet but we'll find out. >> it' clear now that these have become part of a dialogue in the presidential campaign. one of the thing theya id also said to ann curry, it lacks to be a branch of al qaeda. that's something we heard after the benghazi attack happened. where do you think we are now in terms ofterrorism. obviously as the president said, the traditional al eda ae i s t h bee decimated. top leaders including osama bin laden are gone but where are we? >> i think again that's a statement. the ail die is the al qaeda. ere are mutanrm e of wannabes and look-alikes. i think active terrorism in spite of the facthat the president rightly has given some credit for elited osamain land, inor and somewhat naive to say merel

"no real differences between presidential candidates on immigration." "obama versus romney, 101, five ways they differ on immigration." president obama's deferred action plan for immigrants in the u.s. illegally or without authorization. today governor romney says he would continue it. 1.7 million unauthorized immigrants under 31 could benefit from this potentially staying two years with work authorization, as well. that is a lighter version of the dream act which would give permanent residency. the president stalled the president's effort in 2010. romney saying he would veto it saying he would grant leg
who led us down in been gauzy, when ambassador stevens was killed. it is not appropriate to somehow blame the state department or the white house for this. obviously, we have to do everything we can to protect our people. president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt and basically said -- you have got to do a better job -- this is my paraphrasing based on what i have read -- but basically, you have got to do a better job. this is a time for americans to band together. we are depending on those diplomats to represent us. host: eric, on the line for democrats. hello. caller: thank you for taking my call. first of all, the gop always says that there is a liberal media, but that cannot be further from the truth, because all media is corporate owned. when you are a tv person, all you are doing is what your boss told you to do. corporations are owned by rich people who, for the most part, are going to be republican, meeting that all media is right wing, or center-right -- i want to talk about iran. mitt romney do not have any reason to run for president. he is not trying to
communications from ambassador stevens reportedly expressed concern about deteriorating security in benghazi. senator bob corker is one lawmaker that doesn't want to wait for results of an internal investigation. he wants to see the cables right away. he is our guest now. senator, have you received a response from the state departments yet? >> we have not. senator isakson and i two days ago sent the letter. obviously the cables are easy to come forward hopefully this will happen soon. this is turning not something short of benghazi-gate. i wish you were at the briefing that took place. it was the most senseless, worthless briefing i ever attended. at this juncture we have four americans killed. one was widely known and highly respected individual. the media knows more about what happened than we do and we want answers. senator demint and i introduced a bill two weeks ago to get to the bottom of this. it was blocked. i will say this is now turned into a very bipartisan concern. it is my understanding today that all members of the foreign relations committee both democrats and republicans are

that was there. steven briar and antonin scalia and clarence thomas and anthony kennedy. this morning's homily called for the spirit of god to place his blessing on the new year. speaking of the supreme court, a gallup poll shows americans are split in confidence in the judicial branch. when asked, 53% said they have a fair amount of trust. 27% said not very much. only 14% gave their full trust. when it comes to how well the supreme court is doing its job, 49% approve and 40% disapprove. it is likely the last time high-profile cases like health care weighed heavily on the public's view of the court. that ruling on the president's law castigated the nation. the new term could have another round of blockbuster cases, from gay marriage to race-based college entrance policies. we have a current partner of and one of our favorite court watchers, thank you so much for coming in today. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: let's start with day 1, tomorrow, involving shell oil company and allegations of human rights abuses in nigeria. >> absolutely. this is an interesting case. have you a real problem. you
. initially sparkd by an anti-islamic video. and u.s. ambassador chris stevens was killed in an assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the president condemned the video, but he insisted there is no justification for mindless violence. >> given the power of faith in our lives and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression. it is more speech. the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphy anlift up e values of understanding and mutual respect. >> woodruff: mr. obama also had a new warning on iran's nuclear program. yesterday iranian leader ahmadinejad repeated his claim that the program is only for peaceful purposes, an explanation the u.s. and other countries dismiss. today the president said again iran cannot be allowed to build nuclear weapons. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe that there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it wou
